Scott Redding:
“Silverstone is a big weekend, that’s for sure. I’ve been down and had a look at the track and it’s certainly going to be fast, which suits me. Obviously I’ll be looking to put in a good performance in front of my home crowd, but I’m not feeling any additional pressure going into this weekend. I had some problems in Mugello with my knee, which was really painful after ten laps or so. This week I’ve had an MRI scan on the joint and, thankfully, the problem isn’t serious. I’ll have treatment on the knee over the next few days, but I’m not expecting it to be an issue at Silverstone. Like every race, I’ll be pushing as hard as I can to get a good result. With a bit of luck I can hopefully give the British Grand Prix fans something to cheer about next weekend.”

Bradley Smith:
“I’ve got more self confidence since Mugello than I’ve had for a long time and I know I have the ability to win the British Grand Prix,. I got a real buzz cycling round the new circuit and I can’t wait to get started. Also I hope to complete some more laps in a car before first practice on Friday afternoon. The likes of Terol, Espargaro and Marquez are good but they are beatable as long we start on a level playing with the bikes having equal top speed. I’m more excited and determined than nervous because it’s such an important race and so close to home. It’s a special event and it will be tough for everybody at a brand new circuit. No team has any data to go back to while the riders will have to make every single lap of practice and qualifying really count. Parts of the track such as Maggots, Becketts and Chapel will be very technical while other parts will be flat out on 125 and Moto2 bikes.”

Danny Webb:
“I’ve not been round the new track but my brother rode round it last week and I’ve also spoken to Leon Haslam and both told me it was awesome and very quick. It’s going to be very special going back to Silverstone with all its history and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m getting more and more confident and I’m staying on the bike. The plan is to keep doing what we are doing and finish in the top ten in the Championship but not push too hard and throw the bike down the road. I’m looking for a top ten finish on Sunday but if everything went perfectly that could be a podium if I push really hard.”
